Conservation and history

History of the zoo

Learn about our history, when we opened, and recent developments.

The role of a modern zoo

Zoos were first created as private collections, or menageries but their aims and objectives have changed greatly.

Breeding programmes

Good zoos are more than simply a place to see animals. We play a vital role in the conservation of species at risk.

Supported conservation projects

More species are facing extinction than ever before. We have a responsibility to ensure their survival.
